Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's a fun Create-Your-Own-Monster book that will appeal to both beginners and experienced crochet hobbyists. These monsters are small, and although they're just the least bit scary, they're mainly cute. That's because they are Amigurumi monsters! Amigurumi is a popular Japanese crochet method that uses the double-ring technique for making delightful miniature toy animals out of crochet yarn. This book concentrates on patterns for animals of the monster variety, presenting 25 original monster-making projects plus advice to readers on how they can design their own original Amigurumi animals. Author Annie Obaachan advises on yarns, crochet hooks, and other materials, and presents clear instructions for making:

  • A Halloween Monster Collection of Ghosts and Pumpkins
  • Purple Attack--a Miniature Octopus-like Monster
  • Dinky Dinosaur
  • Things with Wings . . . and many more

    Each of these funny little fellows averages four-to-six inches long. The book's easy-to-follow directions are complemented with more than 200 color illustrations.
